Clutch and Idle
« on: March 02, 2014, 06:24:16 pm »
If your clutch works fine when cutting, can it affect the chain movement at idle? I can turn my idle down till it about dies, but the chain still wants move. Bone head as it might be,at that point I can take a wood dowell and roll the chain backwards easily while it is running.

Sounds like it may be a clutch problem, in that either the shoes are worn out or the clutch springs.

Sounds to me like your clutch springs are wore out. Could also be the clutch drum is wore out as well. The springs should hold the the clutch shoes firmly in place on the clutch hub.

Did not mean to double stamp on your post. Guess I just type a little slower.

Makes me wonder how many saws are miss diagnosed for carb or fuel problems when there is a faulty clutch or drum issue.

Thanks gentlemen, it's 25+ yrs old so I will look at the clutch a little closer.When you let off the throttle, it takes a while for the chain to slow down. Thanks again for the help.
